To Autumn - John Keats
About 'To Autumn'
John Keat's 'To Autumn' is a favourite for many people.
I wanted to use some autumnal colours in the border which I would form from an avenue of trees. I chose stylised Silver Birch trees as these are straight slender trees with few branches and foliage below the canopy. The text changes from a full green to dark brown over the 33 lines of the poem with each line being a slightly different colour written in italic in gouache paints.
